Notes

A Dick Latvala DAT shared with for Dead Air's 500th radio show, KXCI 91.3 FM Tucson.

This source and many more to come provided graciously by Jim Blackwood, former Dead Air co-host. We believe it is Dick's copy of Owsleys AUD. We know more of the AUD exists , but this is what Dick chose to share with KXCI. The song list is Dick's and the tracking reflects this.

Subject: one of my favorite field recordings
every once in a while i stumble onto a really special grateful dead field recording. this night in kansas, definitely qualifies. what makes this particular gig really shine--aside from the beautiful playing--is the quality of the sound. there were several shows during this fall '72 run that owsley resorted to audience taping, producing really sweet room recordings. owsley experimented with the placement of the mics, and to a certain extent with kinds of mics (he was limited in the choices available and, as a result, preferred an omnidirectional type of set up). the result is a sonic wonder, filled with abstract passages, manifold chord patterns, and dynamic contrasts. and although it’s only a segment of the full show, it’s a dark star suite that’ll set your head on fire. plug in your headphones and cue this weird and beautiful thing up.

Subject: feeling groovy after the stomp
wow, there is a somewhat demented, sped-up feeling groovy jam in the latter part of the "stomp" track - check it out!
Reviewer: BananaHammock - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 24, 2015
Subject: if you read archive reviews...
...it's important to know who among the common voices can be safely ignored, or even treated as an "inverse recommendation" - if they say it's bad, it's probably good. "njpg" is one of these, a reliably terrible and off-point reviewer with a very narrow view of what's good in Dead music. jboy and Teabag69 being the other two that come to mind...

Anyway this is a crucial listen for serious heads interested in the deep corners of the catalog, maybe less so for newbies, though who knows, give it a try and check it out. As always with AUD recordings, IMO it's worth your time to actually download the FLACs and listen to it in lossless, because compression is more audible on these sources.

I agree with the other commenter who notes the "hanno" transfer of this same source may be slightly preferable because the cut in DS is patched, though the patch is from a lower quality AUD, so some of you may prefer this version with the cut.

Subject: Wtf?
Is njpg serious? I know this stuff is extremely subjective, but IMHO, this is one of the greatest Dark Stars of any era. I can't imagine anyone calling it "lazy", lol.

Nice/excellent aud recording of great sequence of music. Has it all here in 45 minutes. The stomp rules.
Reviewer: njpg - favoritefavorite - November 13, 2011
Subject: Great recording,
and I know I'm not big on '72 shows, but even if I was, this is one of the laziest Dark Stars I've ever heard. Maybe still good if you really like this era.

Subject: Morning Snow
12-30-10. Sitting at home, snowed in by about 14" and snow still falling. I'm getting too old to dig out, and if I could, the road ain't plowed. Thank you, my city, for using my tax dollars wisely. They are really benefiting me. Listened to this Morning Dew and caught a moment of peace. Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to hear this.

Subject: unpatched
One of my favorite 72's as well, but don't forget that Bear's aud has a cut that isn't patched in this transfer. I say you're still better off with this one: http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-11-13.aud.hanno.10089.sbeok.shnf

Reviewer: gphishmon - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 6, 2010
Subject: love it, now I want the rest of the show
This audience tape sounds phenomenal, can't beat a 72 DS>Dew. I like the way Phil starts the stomp, not going straight there, but approaching it with an angular bass riff that they build off of. And of course, the meltdown melts my face. Five stars for what it is; someday I'll get the rest of the show.
Reviewer: heysteve - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 5, 2010
Subject: wow
I don't know, some SBD heads will never give in. But I love auds, even the old 'bad' ones like the flatbed on Haight St.
This recording is freaking amazing. I would give it ten stars if I could. Download it now.
